  1. Handful of Shop-Made Tools

    This last week, I made a handful of homemade shop tools. Starting at the the top left and going clockwise: a marking gauge [walnut], a couple magnetic dovetail saw guides (1:8 and 1:6) [cherry and oak], and a 90 degree magnetic saw guide [walnut and oak].
  2. Presentation Panel

    My Bishop wanted a map of our Ward area, and also some magnetic white board where he and the Ward leadership could manage the organization and plan activities with some mag strips. This is the result. Two frames, made of red oak, joined at one edge by a piano hinge. Hung with a French cleat...
  3. Magnetic, Wooden Knife Holder

    Keep your kitchen knives handy, hang them on a wall and open up some of your counter space. Made from reclaimed oak with a purpleheart accent strip, this will look great in any kitchen to display your fine cutlery. Embedded beneath the surface are twenty 1/2 inch rare earth magnets across the 21...
  4. Kinetic wooden face utilizing magnetic suspension

    This magnetically suspended wooden face is an original sculpture I finished in November 2013.. As with all of my sculptures, I utilize magnetic suspension to keep the pieces afloat. Magnetic suspension of independent forms that together form an complete object, is a kinetic art technique that I...
  5. Magnetic Knife Racks

    New Magnetic Knife Racks for my Etsy shop. 12" and 18" Show here are: Oak, Barn Board, Walnut, Birch, Maple and Cherry. I used 1/2 inch rare earth magnets and cut the holes with a cnc to get a perfectly flat bottom hole. The magnets sit .023" from the visible surface. I added washers to the...
  6. Still perfecting

    These are the third or fourth iteration of bottle openers in my projects. These openers have rare earth magnets that allow the entire unit to clamp onto a refrigerator door like a remora and also capture the bottle caps as they fall. They are good sellers and I'm always trying out ways to...
  7. 3 Landing Nets With Accoutrements

    I posted 3 fly boxes a while back and stated that I needed to try a couple of landing nets. I got inspiration from Greg Madigral (Sierra Nets) and an enormous amount of Pinterest boards. No steaming. I just dry clamped the laminations overnight and glued up the next day. Had to learn paracord...
  8. Magnetic Lazy Susan Knife Rack

    This rack had some trial and error before getting it right. The magnetic slats are marble wood, the base and spindle are poplar. The magnets are N52 rare earth, 1.125", and are crazy strong. I'd be happy to answer any questions. There's a short video here.
  9. Batch o' Magnetic Bottle Openers

    I've posted this type of project before, but they sell well and I'm always tweaking the design. Before a rundown on the build…. About 10" tall and 4-1/2" wide, 5/8" thick. Picture 1: Cherry with a sapwood edge, paired up and spliced together Picture 2: Walnut, cherry. white oak. BB ply...
  10. Magnetic Knife Holder

    Magnetic knife holder made in 2014 from Walnut, Maple, & Padauk.
  11. Magnetic Table Saw Fence

    Here's my most recent shop project. It's a magnetic switch table saw fence. My table saw's old fence was never consistent, and I hated the front to back clamp system. I'd love a Biesemeyer fence and the front alignment, but they're definitely too pricey/fancy for my used Craftsman contractor...
  12. Assorted kitchen doodads

    These are just a few of the things I have made in the past few weeks to combat the lack of space in my kitchen. The oak knife strip in the first picture is using 1/4" x 1/8th" neodymium magnets from magcraft.com . They are just slightly inset, so that they won't scratch the knives. I used food...
  13. Hexagonal Magnetic Knife Block

    I made this magnetic knife block for a Mother's Day gift (that's now late since I work slowly), based on a similar project by JDBlades. There are neodymium magnets in the plugged holes, two in each side of the hexagon to keep the knives attached and aligned. The different heights of the sides...
  14. Magnetic dust collection bracket

    Ever since I put my router table in my table saw wing I've had some issues with dust collection. My old standalone table had a dual port for above and below-table dust collection, but as much as I love the Bench Dog cast iron table it does make it harder to catch the dust. Under-table...
  15. Workbench

    Here's my first attempt at a traditional style workbench. I discovered right away that it's very challenging to find good boards at the "box stores". I had optimistic plans to include those cool looking dovetails on the outer skirt but those are going to have to wait since my skills are not up...
  16. Walnut Earring Rack / Holder

    My li'l wifey-poo had me make an earring holder for her a few years ago and I figured I'd take a shot at upgrading the design for a sale item. The original was made from a pair of 3/4" dowels, vertical between two horizontal strips of poplar, and six 3/16" dowels horizontal between the side...
  17. Magnetic Frame to go on my Steel Cabinet Converted Chalkboard

    I was eyeing my steel cabinet for a while thinking about how nice it would be to have a writable surface somewhere on it. One night while playing cricket with my friend, I took some sandpaper and roughed up a section just a bit so I could keep score. Ever since I wanted to make it a little nicer...
  18. Red/White Oak Petite Roubo Workbench

    I finally finished my "Petite Roubo". I call it a petite Roubo because the top is about half the thickness (~2.25) of a normal Roubo. The legs are about 3.5"x3.5". Everything is draw-bored together without glue. The oak and walnut for the top was given to me by my grandfather who was a...
  19. Reclaimed Barn Wood Siding Magnetic Chalkboard

    This is a magnetic chalkboard that I framed with reclaimed barn wood siding from our lot. I also made the chair rail and other pieces in the rooms from reclaimed materials. This is for a clothing company's offices. We are building quite a few reclaimed pieces for their designers.
  20. Magnetic Dry Erase Board

    I built this message board for our school's silent auction. The dry erase board is actually inset into the frame itself. All parts were cut using my crosscut sled and my miter sled that I built recently. I cut down some quarter round I has to smooth the transitions from the board to the frame...
